BIOGRAPHY

Moran Sanderovich  is a Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist. Her work spans across various mediums, such as performance, sculpture, and installation. Some of her sculptures are standalone artworks and installations, and some are wearing material as prosthetics transforming her body. Sanderovich’s work seeks new ways to challenge the perception of the human body, and is highly complex, combining multiple materials, with high attention to detail. She uses silicone, fabric, industrial waste, and toys, organic objects such as bone and hair, latex, among other found objects. By doing so, she does not only tell a story, but uses substance as a carrier for deconstructing perception of materialism, and confronts the spectators with dissonant images that require our attention, both on the materialistic and narrative aspects.
